Ode to a middle school locker












Oh, you silly locker,
She really hates you so.
You make her late to classes,
The tears how they do flow.

The combination is confusing,
The numbers are so tricky.
Detention is coming soon,
Middle school is proving icky.

So I drove her back to her school,
I taught, yet felt her wrath.
Alas, the locker she can open!
Now we focus on that Math.

Hahahha Ohhh Devin, you are such a hoot!!
I can remember trying to figure out those stupid junior high lockers too. NOT fun times! :(

I can remember having nightmares about it. I also remember just flat out blanking on the combo even at the end of the school year!! I seriously would have to chant it on the way to my locker sometimes...

I remember junior high all too well and that darn combo lock. Ugh...

Glad she feels better about it now.

Cute, I hope it gets easier. Middle school is hard enough without locker issues!

I STILL have locker combo forgetting nightmares and I can't remember the last time I had a locker.

Have her write the number and leave it in her purse or something - I remember thinking how top secret it was, but really, it's more important to get in and out of there with minimum stress!

I still have dreams about trying to find my locker and then when I do, I cannot open it. You'd think after 18 years . . .

I had to not think about my combo, just blank out my mind whenever I tried to open my locker. Once my physics teacher had to cut open my locker b/c neither of us could get it open. He had gigantic nippers that stood as tall as he was to open wayward lockers. I have no idea where he hid those things.
